Gregorian filly, cost 10,000 gns as a yearling. Half-sister to two winning sprinters and dam a sprint winner, half-sister to Group 2 winning juvenile over 6f. Impressive winner on debut at Beverley and form of that race boosted since. Not ruled out.

Kuroshio filly, cost £8,000 as a yearling. Dam related to a Listed winner as a juvenile over 7f. Defied greenness to win at Wolverhampton last month. Form of that race taken plenty of knocks since but should improve and booking of De Sousa a plus.

Improved from Beverley debut to win at Bath earlier in the month but will need more against these rivals.
